Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
Moss Wood are endowed with the most splendid vineyards. Each block has particular traits which come together in the final assemblage to construct the definitive Moss Wood style. The blocks are literally only metres apart but there are sufficient differences in soil, aspect and altitude for them to show unique flavours. Every section, row by row, of each block is picked separately as it comes into maturity. The youthful generosity of Margaret River Merlot is very appealing and there will be a temptation to consume it young.
Bright, deep brick red. Powerful black fruits of blackberry and mulberry, backed up by Merlot’s complex notes, lots of mushroom, tar and earth. The palate has immediate impact with intense dark fruit notes of cherry and blackberry filling the front and mid palate. The finish combines classic Merlot style of soft charry oak and bitumen notes.
